    Made for Windows, this program is not similar enough to htop to count as an alternative.

    Using htop we can see the load on every core separately while Task Manager just shows us an overview of all the cores, and not in details.

    Gotop has most of the features of htop with an easier-to-use interface, and among the htop-like monitoring tools I've tried gotop's TUI is the most robust and consistent.
